Crestron Introduces New Occupancy Sensors

Crestron Green Light™ Expands its Energy Saving Product Line

ROCKLEIGH, NJ, January 26, 2009 - Crestron Green Light occupancy sensors are now available to enhance the functionality of Crestron Green Light™ environmental controls. The new Crestron occupancy sensors have built -in microprocessors and photocells to significantly reduce on -time for lights, cutting energy usage. Climate and device control can also be integrated. Models include wall and ceiling mount versions with a variety of coverage ranges.


Crestron Green Light sensors continually analyze and adjust to changing conditions, using the latest in microprocessor -based technology to optimize performance. Dual -technology (ultrasonic and passive infrared) sensing delivers optimum detection of motion while minimizing the effects of false triggers, such as electrical noise, air currents, and temperature changes. Passive infrared -only versions are available as well.

Upon activation, each sensor initiates in "walk -through" mode. "Walk -through" mode is active for a two and a half minute interval, during which lights turn off promptly when a person enters and exits the room. After the 2.5 minute period of occupancy, the sensor shifts into "occupied" mode.

"Delayed off" is initially set via the timer knob on the sensor, turning lights off when no motion is detected after a specific time. While the sensor is in use, the sensor learns room occupancy patterns. The delayed off time will change as the sensor intelligently adapts to environmental conditions and occupancy patterns.

When enabled, the built -in photocell overrides the occupancy sensor if the ambient light level is above a set threshold, preventing lights from turning on when there is sufficient daylight in the room. Sensor behavior can be customized via the Crestron control system.

PureLink - HCE III TX/RX: 4K HDR over HDBaseT Extension System w/ Control and Bi-Directional PoE

The HCE III Tx/Rx HDBaseT™ extension system offers full HDMI 2.0 compliance supporting HDR (High Dynamic Range) and 4K@60Hz with 4:4:4 chroma sampling. Featuring PureLink's proprietary Prcis codec, a light compression technology, the HCE III can transport Ultra HD/4K, multi-channel audio, and High Dynamic Range (10 bits support) content over a single CATx cable. The HCE III provides HDMI extension up to 130 feet (40 meters) at Ultra HD/4K and up to 230 ft. (70 meters) at 1080p over category cable with embedded multi-channel audio, CEC pass-through, bi-directional RS-232 and IR control, and PoE - all with zero loss and zero noise. The HCE III Tx/Rx also supports Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD Master Audio plus LCPM (up to 192 kHz). Additionally, the low profile "slim box" enclosure design make the HCE III ideal for limited space installation environments, such as behind flat panel displays and video walls.
